in for overall view of yahoo! and how the positive developments fit into the economy. larry i cut you off in mid-sentence so i will go to you first. good news on yahoo! specifically. how does yahoo!'s earnings beat on the earnings sort of set a stage for what is happening in the technology sector at large? is this just part of what you expect? because we also have apple pulling the nasdaq down? >> well, absolutely. you know, if you look at technology, it is always been one of the top three sectors that have always pulled us out of recessions or slowdowns. these companies, apple, google, yahoo!, continue to change the way we receive information and shop online both business appersonally. we feel technology will be here for a long time to come down the road. we like the tech sector very much. cheryl: sam as well has been so patient standing by. since marisa meyer took over the company the stock is up 30%. some are looking for headlines in the report about plans she has specific plans, for this company. sam, we're not seeing that. what type of role is leadership in all of this do you think? >> i th
showdown from showdown? and how will the economy respond to what is or is not accomplished here in washington? my exclusive guest this morning will have something to say about all of this. house budget chairman and the republican party's 2012 vice presidential nominee paul ryan here for his first live interview since the election. chairman, welcome back to "meet the press." >> great to be back with you. >> let's talk about this top priority of the budget battle. it will really mark the beginning of the president's second term. the debt ceiling has been raised, at least temporarily, but there are still big decisions to be made. you specifically said in the last few days that your priority is to make a big down payment on the debt. a debt crisis that you see in this country. >> that's right. >> what do you specifically require? what's the priority? what has the president got to do in your point of view? >> i'll just explain what the speaker said when we passed that bill. our goal is to get cuts and reforms that put us on a path to balancing the budget in a decade. we think the sen
. rather than focusing on america's vexing problems like an exploding debt and a weak economy, mr. obama put forth that the nation's top priority must be imposing social justice. >> we must make the hard choices to reduce the cost of healthcare and the size of our deficit. but we reject the belief that america must choose between caring for the generation who built this country and investing in the generation that will build its future. [ applause ] for we remember the lessons of our past when twilight years were spent in poverty. parents of a child with a disability had nowhere to turn. we do not believe that in this country freedom is reserved for the lucky. talking points disagrees with president obama's priority. although. impossible to do what the president wants to do. in short, prosperity. can't be done no matter how much money you spend. much more effective is building a strong society based upon a robust free market and effective, effective social programs. that provide opportunity rather than charity. as the president should know by now. the federal government cannot provide fo
. remember the virginia economy, a lot of places very dependent on defense and other industries, neither side will look good if they cannot make an agreement. it is a prediction but one that i don't necessarily think will be true. >> david cuts would have a serious drag on the economy estimates from a half a percent to a full point of gdp. someone is going to get the blame for that if it happens. who do you think blinks first? >> that is a good point. you may recall the pentagon was very concerned about this saying they would have to cut about $100 billion right off the bat. some of the officials went to the white house and said let's make a deal on this. there will be a lot of pressure to do that. republicans agreed to raise the debt ceiling. that took away a little bit of their leverage going into negotiations at the end of february. here comes paul ryan. where has he been? he is making this line in the sand now. i think the white house is concerned because this could hurt the economy going forward if we go through these deep cuts and right now the white house is saying we need to keep the

when those numbers come out and will a good number what will it say about the economy, where it is? >> it depends on what the good number is right in the expectation is for about 175 thousand jobs, clearly a positive number moving in the right direction, but understand, you know, we need to create better than 300,000 jobs every month in order to really get out of this hole that we're in. that being said, i think you're going to get a preliminary look at the jobs number on wednesday, adp, they will come out wednesday with their sometiesti. any positive number is a good number. anything in or around 165 will be viewed as certainly expected. don't expect, you know they massive reaction as a result. >>> this economy like an indecisive lover, isn't it? earnings, coming up. boeing, ford, caterpillar, all big players out there, good indicator of where the economy is heading. what do you expect to see there? >> listen, we have seen earnings this quarter come in, 72% of the earnings so far have wasn't the estimates, but investors should understand the estimates have been slashed for the fou

population, a serious drain on the company's economy. frequent "varney & company" guest summed up japan's predicament in an interesting way, listen to this. >> you can see anecdotally they sell more adult diaper products than infant. stuart: is that true? >> yes, it is. stuart: wow, indeed. that's the dire situation in japan. contrast that with the united states. our proportion of old people far, far lower than japan, and lower than europe, too. a big part of that is because of immigran immigrants. now this, the former head of the head of the city teacher's union, that was years ago, she is, however, randy weingarten, now the head of the federation of teachers which is a part of the afl-cio and joins us in the next hour, and topic number one, the six-figure payout. we follow microsoft on this program, i own some of that stuff and we talked to an executive who had the ear of bill gates, he says microsoft chief steve ballmer has to go. also coming up, big news i should say from two names you know, google and ibm, we're following both of them at the opening bell. may, everybody, cheer up,
to our economy, far worse than any economic period seen in the history of the united states. in my judgment if the federal government becomes insolvent or goes into bankruptcy because the debt has accumulated to such an extent that it overwhelmed our ability to pay. in that context, then, i'm willing to raise the debt ceiling if one or two things happens. first, the constitutional amendment must pass the united states congress and sent to the people. >> that could happen. >> certainly may not happen if we don't try, the second is, substantial spending cuts. >> according to john boehner that is not going to happen either. >> a sincere effort of trying to address the problem, the trillion dollar a year deficits are unsustainable. >> we get that from republicans, i'm trying to get at what has happened within the republican congress in the house such that the day after the inauguration, the republican leadership is saying let's not raise the debt ceiling? let's pretend we simply do not have one. and do that for a period of months. is that -- is that thing going to get the votes? that i
soon. because that could put us back in a recession. it would pull too much demand out of the economy. for the long-term when people say correctly, we have a serious, long-term fiscal problem, the cause of the problem is that if we don't do anything the debt will rise faster than the economy grows. and ultimately we'll have to pay so much in interest payments, we're in big trouble. but what we need to do to prevent that is to keep the debt stable. to keep it from rising faster than the economy grows. and to do that you need deficits below about 3 or maybe 2 and a half percent of the gross domestic product each year. you don't need the deficits at zero. you don't need the balance. and in fact, the difference between a small deficit to 2, 2 and a half percent of gdp, if the difference was if you shorted funding for education and highways and roads and bridges and basic scientific research, you would probably have a smaller economy in the long run, not a bigger one. because you would have starved the very kind of investments you need to fuel long-term productivity increases and growth in
for the economy. it is not good for our children. its sad we have to have a gimmick like this. some members are a quite wealthy, there are a few of them, won't care. but a good many members after month or two their spouses will say to them, what are you doing you knucklehead. they have to have a solution. melissa: this is another time the american public looks at it, wow, feels like you put off the work that you need to do. we said we will raise the debt ceiling for a couple months and, you know, there you go. we haven't gotten any of the real work done? >> it was a short-term punt but i think it was pretty shrewd move by the republicans because you can't default on our debt. if interest rates went up even slightly the amount of interest we would have to pay on our $16 trillion debt would be enormous. you can't do that. it would be shooting ourself in the foot. they tried closing down the government back in the 1990s. that didn't didn't work too well. they're focusing on what is called the sequester, which are across the board spending reductions. that's where i think they will make their s

having about the fiscal cliff and the debt ceiling. the american economy somebody very important to the global economy. we cannot have the kind of nonsense we've had going on in the building behind me and think that that's going to be either good foreign policy or economic policy for around the globe, not just here at home. i think he was trying to remind people we do live in a global economy. it is interconnected and that that does impact our foreign policy and our defenses. >> it clearly does. michael, the outgoing secretary of state said, and i'm quoting her, we are facing a spreading hi hjihadist threat across nort africa. is it your view that the attack on the consulate in libya, the hostage taking at that gas plant in algeria, and the conflict in mali mean that north africa is now the main front for islamic terrorism and how does a new secretary of state confront this? >> great question. i don't know that i would say it's the main front, but it is certainly a serious front and a serious set of interlocked issues. one thing we have to debate on libya, because i've been perp
. that was way before the economy went into freefall, so he had a couple other priorities he had to deal with when he first came into office. and the third thing, erin, is that this president wants this as his legacy. and he has said that he wants it to be a priority, even during the re-electiore-election, he tt this, so he knows that now he has a debt to pay. the republicans need to do this as a necessity, and with all due respect to the congressman, this is absolutely an issue of electoral survival for the republican party. the congressman is right that this isn't the only thing that republicans need to soften up their tone on, but if this isn't something they get done for the latino community, they're not going to listen to them on anything else. >> congressman, here is my problem intellec chatually from where you're coming from. and this is a complicated issue, but i don't understand. these people are already here. you're not going to be able to pick them up and move them out. that's not practical. so if you start from that point of view, how are you ever going to get a deal? >> if i

their agenda today as well. cutting spending. >> our nation's total debt is now larger than our entire economy. this means that every man, woman and child owes a $53,000 share of this debt. that level of spending is unsustainable. a major credit rating agency has already downgraded our nation's credit once. and if we don't start making some real progress on spending reforms, more downgrades are likely in the near future. >> about eight minutes past the hour now. live look this is happening in washington, d.c. as we speak. this is happening really across the country. one of the main ones, this is a rally for gun control taking place in washington, d.c. people there are rallying for stricter gun laws. you know this has been the big debate in the country since the shooting, the killing of all those children in newtown, connecticut at their elementary school. you're seeiie seeing eleanor ho. expecting residents of newtown, connecticut to play a role in this march today. we don't have a wider shot of how many people turned out. march happening going to keep an eye on it there in washington, d.c. >>
